Artists & Their Regions - 2010
Artists & Their Regions (formerly Writers and Their Regions) is the CCW's signature course. It features seminar-style class meetings and a week-long artists' retreat that gives students and faculty time to focus on their creative projects.
The course is offered each Spring to upperclassmen dedicated to honing their craft and developing a specific creative project over the semester.
In Spring 2010, the Writers & Their Regions class focused on the relationship between story and place.
- Tracy Daugherty's It Takes A Worried Man
- R.G. Vliet's Rockspring
- Sheryl St. Germain's How Heavy the Breath of God
- Guillermo del Torro's films The Devil's Backbone and Pan's Labyrinth
Over Spring Break, the class stayed in a ranch house on the Frio River and enjoyed a week of living and working together. Students worked on projects ranging from needlecraft to film to creative writing.
